Terpenes are aromatic and taste molecules found in cannabis which produce each product's distinct scent and flavor. The terpene profile is an important indicator of product potency, as numerous terpenes are known to elicit physiological effects and play a significant role in the "Entourage Effect" associated with cannabis consumption.Learn More
Cannabis plants are often sprayed with pesticides, herbicides, and insecticides to promote cannabis plant health and increasing crop yields. A negative impact of the use of these chemicals is the potential carryover on to final products. Pesticide testing for cannabis ensures the safety and quality of the product by detecting and measuring the presence of harmful pesticides.Learn More
Yeast and mold often can grow under the same conditions as cannabis and if consumed, can be especially harmful. Microbial testing for cannabis is a critical step in ensuring the safety and quality of the product. These tests look for harmful bacteria, mold, and yeast that can cause illness or allergic reactions.Learn More
Cannabis plants are bioaccumulators and can absorb heavy metals from soil and water. This means that cannabis can accumulate high levels of heavy metals, such as arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury, which can be harmful to human health. Heavy metal testing for cannabis is a critical step in ensuring the safety and quality of the product.Learn More
Processors of cannabis utilize a variety of solvents to manufacture highly concentrated waxes and oils. Residual solvent testing is a critical process for ensuring the safety and quality of cannabis products by detecting and measuring the presence of solvents, such as butane or ethanol, that may remain in the final product after extraction or manufacturing.Learn More
The environments for growing cannabis are also very conducive to the growth of certain species of molds (such as Aspergillus) and other fungi. Cannabis mycotoxin testing involves screening for harmful mycotoxins produced by molds and fungi, such as aflatoxins and ochratoxins, which can contaminate cannabis plants. Mycotoxin screening ensures toxins levels are below the regulated threshold considered safe for consumption.Learn More
Cannabis foreign material testing looks for the presence of unwanted materials in cannabis products. Testing for filth and foreign material allows for the measure of what is present in the sample which includes but is not limited to hair, insects, feces, dirt, contaminants, manufacturing waste, and other by-products.Learn More
Moisture content is the measure of the total amount of water in a cannabis product. It is expressed as a percentage of the total weight of the product. Moisture content can affect the stability and shelf life of cannabis products. Products with high moisture content are more susceptible to mold and bacterial growth, which can lead to spoilage and contamination.Learn More
Water activity is a measure of the availability of water in a cannabis product. A product’s water activity determines its ability to grow mold or fungus. Measuring the water activity in a cannabis product provides an excellent way to analyze how susceptible the product is to microbial contamination.Learn More
